Almost all students at my school try to attend classes as they find it extremely tiresome to videotape a certain class -- although that option is certainly available.

LOL spouse! ;)

The salary they get you started at is ridiculous!

You think everyone will be able to go to biglaw to earn big bucks?! Well, my dear, you're so mistaken!

Dude...I've been a misanthrope for about 10 years now. So that possibility is out.

Homeless human hunting? Sounds like a movie my Governor was in. And regardless, that'd be too easy cuz I'm a crack shot. I want something wiley, weasely, and a contracts professor (not mine, of course).

Long hate the misanthrope.

lol ;)

i agree with almost everything you said.

Majority of law graduates do not practice law after 5 years?


[...] When you think about the complaints you've heard from friends in small offices, you can place almost every complaint as being caused by the pattern I'm talking about. So what should you do? That is the question facing the 75% of law school grads who end up in the kind of practice that law school ignores. Well, you can drop out of the practice of law. Between 40% and 50% of all law school graduates drop out. There are very real options to the practice of law.[...],38675.msg945165.html#msg945165

General Board / Re: LSAT Score no predictor of success

according to LSN - my LSAT score is one of the lowest in my entire class....yet I got the highest grade in my Civ Pro class on the final.  Right on !

Yep, I agree that 1) the lsat sucks, and 2) even though I wish it could be, the lsat is not a good predictor of success; I was well over the 75% and did pretty crappy/mediocre sem 1 (let that be a lesson to those who are confident b/c of a high lsat ;)).

What your undergrad GPA was, Chicago?!

I think it has to do with a man at an intersection that disregards a red traffic light. A traffic policeman says him he's not supposed to do it. The man says that he can as there were no cars and that sometimes the traffic light is green but there are cars going thru and he can't cross the road. The traffic policeman becomes confused and the man crosses the road seeing that the policeman can't even say a word. That's what it says in essence.

Le visage en feu
J'arrive à un carrefour,
le feu était au rouge.
Il n'y avait pas de voitures,
je passe!
Seulement, il y avait
un agent qui faisait le guet
Il me siffle.
Il me dit
- Vous êtes passé au rouge!
- Oui ! Il n'y avait pas de voitures!
- Ce n'est pas une raison!
Je dis:
- Ah si! Quelquefois, le feu est au vert . . .
Il y a des voitures et . .
je ne peux pas passer!
Stupeur de l'agent!
Il est devenu tout rouge.
Je lui dis:
- Vous avez le visage en feu!
Il est devenu tout vert!
Alors, je suis passé!

And women.

4. the competitive and ruthless female dog.

If that's what you're referring to, I'd like to suggest that men also can be bitches!
